…a whole lot of tra la la…

“I’ve discovered the secret of life. A lot of hard work, a lot of sense of humor, a lot of joy and a whole lot of tra la la.” –Kay Thompson

Here’s to the tra la la! 

I’m mildly obsessed with Kay Thompson. I mentioned her role in Funny Face a few days ago–“Think Pink!”–but I’m more familiar with her as an author. She created the character of Eloise–the precocious six-year-old who lives on the top floor of the Plaza Hotel with Nanny, Weenie and Skipperdee.

Eloise is one of my muses.

And now I’m off to write on the walls.
